    Same is the case when i try to view those two threads from office.From home i am able to view thouhg.
    The reason you cannot see from work is because of the privacy settings of your browser in IE. Set you browser privacy setting to low to accept all cookies and also in your security settings set add IV to the trusted sites.

    Do this and you are set to spend all the free time at work browsing IV and waiting for your approval.... good luck :)

    to all BEC folks:

    your anguish is so very legitimate. i, for one, feel truly bad for you.
    you deserved relief and nothing has come so far.
    there is no harm in venting your frustration on a thread, i don't think anyone can blame you for feeling screwed.

    but peace friends, iv's fight is not over by a long shot. we stand together for relief for all- including you. i hope that BEC releases the approvals quickly, and you guys will certainly be current. in fact you will have GC long before many filing 485's now.

    let's keep working, keep lobbying, keeping fighting the good fight and please don't despair. we are all with you.

    i hope i speak on behalf of all fair minded iv members- and there are plenty.
    I second your message paskal.

    Snathan, Thanks for all your help. Its been 9 months that my application is in PERM process and nothing happened except an AUDIT. I want to get out of this mess. I want to do anything that i can do to get out of this mess soon.


    Attorney can contact the DOL after 4 months of the audit reply. My reply was on March 11th. My attorney asked me to wait 2 more months for her to contact DOL.

    If it is 4 months after the audit reply, ask your attorney to contact the DOL.

    Called my local congressman's office and left a voice message. Called the offices of Bob Menendez and Henry Cuellar. Rep. Menendez's staff noted down my message and said they will pass it on. Rep. Cuellar's staff mentioned that some of the contents of the bills are contradictory to the things that he supports and got into talking about comprehensive reform. I politely listened to him and reiterated my request, mentioning that his support was very important to get moving on immigration reform. Have to call the other members now. Seemed quite daunting initially However I will try to finish calling the other members as well. Do we still call the office of Ciro Rodriguez ? Going by the postings, they seem to be against the bills.

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$GOOD MORNING GC$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Deadline = April 30th, 2011
    Goal = 5000 votes on survey (see I-485 filing w/o current PD thread) and momentum to continue with this campaign.The survey is a platform to gather and push for launching action items. Based on response by 04/30/2011 - IV will decide whether to even proceed with initiative or not.
    Actions - 1) Vote on survey.
    2)Email with PD, ph#,email & subject "I485 filing impacted�,
    3)Print/Circulate Fliers and spread FB, wiki link (see "support thread")

    This is a supporting thread to the "Want to File I-485 without Current Priority Date? Gather here" thread started by pappu.

    As suggested by pappu/starsun, this supporting thread provides impacted members with additional information and tools to help the initiative.

    Visit Immigration Voice Wiki ( 2C_and_EB3.29) - for overview of Employment Based - Green Card process
    Visit I485 Filing w/o current PD Wiki ( - for overview of this initiative

    As pappu stated in the first post of the above referenced thread - some of the ongoing efforts include finding how many IV members would get benefit from such a provision and get basic details such as username/Priority Date of impacted members. Future action items might include drafting documents and letters to support this provision. There maybe actions such as sending emails etc. However we would not be able to open a public action item unless we can have thousands of our members willing to participate in a grassroots action item. This survey intends to understand the needs of our membership for this provision and collect grassroots information.

    The fact is we have a dedicated group of volunteers (and we need more) who have been trying their best to spread the message about this initiative so that a strong grass-roots support can be created leading up to launch of the public action items. So far we have around 1100 people who have responded. Based on quick calculations carried out using PERM data, it is estimated that there are at least 60K-70K EB applicants waiting to file I-485/EAD/AP (this is a very conservative estimate..the actual number could be much more). Grass-roots initiatives require time and patience and we request maximum number of impacted folks to participate actively.
    What can you do to participate?
    1) Vote on the poll/survey created by Pappu.

    Then please send an email to (starsun) with subject - "I485 filing without current PD - Impacted Member". Include your a) IV username b) Email address c) Phone #, d) State of Residence e) Priority Date - so that grassroot efforts can be coordinated

    2) Print out below Flier and circulate at all asian/indian malls/groceries/theaters. Forward the flier to your friends/co-workers and ask them to do the same.

    I485 Filing Initiative Flier (

    3) Volunteers have created a facebook community and an Immigration Voice WIKI page to spread the message about this initiative. Please circulate these links among your friends/co-workers who will be helped.

    Please "Share" and "Link" and "send to friend" the facebook community via your Facebook account. Also include these two links when you post on the IV forum.

    Facebook - IV I485 filing w/o current PD initiative community (!/pages/Immigration-Voice-Grass-roots-Campaigns/150562351660693?v=info)

    Do we know for sure that this letter is in fact real? I mean yes it's on one website that has a link to a PDF document, but surely we can get it verified from another source (and I don't mean another immigration website forum) before we start sending her thanks and flowers.

    Well, its not too late to thank someone. At least she sent letters out on July 2nd warning them to re-consider issuing the update! Let's mail her a general letter thanking her for her efforts. I don't think we need to go into specifics.

    When USCIS sent you the RFE notice, you would have seen "Request for Evidence". After USCIS receives your response, you would have seen the hard LUD, while the header is still for RFE. Then after some days (with in 60 days), the header changes to "Request for Evidence Response Review", while the old header "Request for Evidence" vanishes. I was in the same boat like you. I spoke to my attorney's team and they offered me the insight glimpse of working of USCIS.

    Well I responded in Oct 2008 and it had RFE status. It didnt change for the past 2 years and it changed to "RFE Review" yesterday. Is this just a coincidence or something to extract out of it ?

    Eb1 doesnot care about Eb2 & Eb3.
    Eb2 doesnot care about Eb1 & Eb3.
    Eb3 doesnot care about Eb1 & Eb2.

    Embarrassingly this is the truth!!!

    Correction ..
    EB1 do not care about anyone

    EB2 and EB3 care about what is happening because i have seen EB2 guys on this forum talk about the EB3 backlog and on the flip side there are EB3 guys who are working with IV on whatever garden path they are being led on.

    My effort is to make IV core aware of the fact that maximum EB3 guys do not believe in IV direction. Now that is an eye opener and if IV really believes that they they are a representative of all EB they must face the fact that they do not have support of maximum of EB3 folks

    Now if IV comes up with some genuine action items which will relieve the pressure on EB3 then they will see that EB3 folks will start believing in this whole lobbying and advocacy effort.

    For example this 55k bill could include terms for EB3. Now no one from IV is talking about that and one enlightened eb2 volunteer says let the bill come through then we can include but if IV does not talk about it now how will any EB3 believe that IV would do in crunch time

    The usual spiel of IV stating once EB2 becomes current EB3 will move will not hold water any longer because IV cannot promise that EB2 will come to a point where it has no more apps and spillover will go to EB3.

    So that mean the whole IV approach is flawed

    Slammer, if you got visa number last year you should have gotten an interview months back, UNLESS your consulate appoinment schedule is backlogged.

    Good luck

    We called the NVC 2 days ago about the status of our application and the guy on the phone (who was, BTW, very polite and patient) told me that everything was processed and as soon as our PD was current we would get an interview appointment very soon.

    We also sent an email-inquiry to the NVC last week and just today we got the reply :
    "Unfortunately, this case no longer has a visa number available. This is
    because the applicant' visa category is oversubscribed, meaning that
    the available numerical limit of visas able to be issued was reached.
    Upon reaching the numerical limit of visas able to be issued, only
    beneficiaries who have a priority date earlier than listed in the current
    Visa Bulletin may be allotted a visa number in this visa category. "

    So, that must mean that they had a visa number for us back in August 2007 when they sent us the DS230-I and the bills for the visa fees although according to the VB for August/September 2007 EB3 ROW was "U" ?

    Hmm, I have to admit that I have kind of given up on understanding how this all works. I'm just looking forward to that day when we finally receive our GC and are able to move to the States.

    Good luck to all of you and even more patience !

    Is there anything one can do to speed up the labor processing times at Atlanta PERM processing center? They seem to have caught the flu from their Grand daddy(BEC) these days. They are taking for ever to process applications and no one seems to notice it, while their sister processing center in Chicago has average processing time of 2 weeks. What can one do to fix this problem? Please advise.

    Hi All,
    MY LC (PD May 2003) is still stuck in DBEC. So I may or may not be able to file withing Aug17th.
    My question is regarding the procedure used by USCIS to process AOS applications. It would be great if someone could explain this to me.
    These are my questions:
    1. Is the AOS application processed by RD or PD?
    2. Once USCIS starts processing the I485, do they check PD at any stage, or is it just used as the initail "gate " for allowing I485 application submission?
    3. Suppose Tom with a PD of July 2006 applied in July 2007. Then Harry's case gets approved by BEC in August 2007 and he applies in October 2007. Who will get the GC first?

    Thanks for the help!


    let me try to answer your question the best I can. Answers in order:

    For all purposes: lets assume 2 examples. Person A PD July 2006 and RD of July2, 2007 and Person B PD April 2006 and RD of July 2, 2007.

    1. AOS is processed by a "combination" of RD and PD. As per the current Bulletin BOTH A and B can apply. The Service centres are currently processing September 2006 applications. When they reach July 2, 2007 processing dates, both applications will be picked up and then "thoeretically" they should ask for Visa number for A BEFORE asking a visa number for B as A has an earlier PD.
    2. Answered in same question 1 above.
    3. If Harry's case gets approved in August 2007 by BEC he WILL NOT be able to apply for I-485 as the July Bulleting is valid only for applicants VALID in july. Just beacuse they are accepting till AUg 17, does not mean people whose LC got approved between Aug 1-17 can apply, becuase they were technically NOT eligible to apply in July.

    Does that answer your questions. PM me if you want more detail.

    05-15 03:42 PM
    Hi espoir.. Thanks. Please have your friends from that constituency call their office also.

    I just called Congressman Cuellar's office. I live in his constituency. They took my name and address. I will call the rest in the evening
